Spikes On The Grille - Carmelite Monastery

I wonder what my family's reaction to a grille like that would be?!  That plus a great veil plus them having no knowledge of those things existing would make quite the scene.  The Carmel Im going to just has a grille which my family doesnt know about so seeing that, if they ever visit, will be interesting.

Hi Vee!

Well, you can probably show them the photo of spiked grille and nuns with faces fully covered with enclosure and ask them what they think about these scenarios?

Fascinating stuff!

 

I notice some of you  are referencing constitutions...

How did you gain access to orders' constitutions?  I would love to read these.  Are they publicly available?

they are private documents but I got them due to my research work.

there are documents available at the lisieux carmel archives website regarding customary, rule and constitutions, etc.

Interesting, looks like these spikes have been melted and bent down.

Thanks, Chiqui!  

Indeed, it was bent down!  Is this one of the Carmels founded by St. Teresa herself?
